I love using a classroom economy system in my classroom! Students earn "money" to spend on prizes and rewards (these rewards do NOT have to cost you any money-- click here to see the reward cards I use)
I love using fake dollars because it helps the students practice counting money and getting change. However, the last 2 years it has been easier to me to maintain my classroom economy by giving each student a classroom credit card. I put each student's name on a card, laminate for durability, and then use a Sharpie and Expo to write points/erase points off their cards (Click here to read about how I use my cards in my classroom).
These templates come with instructions to edit-- please know that it will require some time to type out student names and add clipart (especially to each card). It usually takes me about 20-30 minutes every year.
**Please be sure you own PowerPoint before purchasing-- you will need it if you want to edit the templates**
